GeeXLab - english forum / Shadertoy multipass demos
« on: February 07, 2016, 08:33:15 PM »
I'm preparing a small framework (Lua) for Shadertoy multipass demos.

This simple (and pleasing) multipass demo works fine in GeeXLab:

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Vulkan Memory Management
« on: February 05, 2016, 03:51:00 PM »

Vulkan offers another key difference to OpenGL with respect to memory allocation. When it comes to managing memory allocations as well as assigning it to individual resources, the OpenGL driver does most of the work for the developer. This allows applications to be developed, tested and deployed very quickly. In Vulkan however, the programmer takes responsibility meaning that many operations that OpenGL orchestrates heuristically can be orchestrated based on an absolute knowledge of the resource lifecycle.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / WebGL - Play serious games in your browser

No plug-ins, no installing anything, just go to the site.

WebGL is the only way to run a 3D app on Windows, Mac, and Android, etc., with no source changes. The first and only time this has ever been possible – in the known universe! And as Apple fragments the native API landscape with Metal – this portability becomes even more valuable.

In related news, Croteam has also confirmed that Serious Sam 4 will support the Vulkan API, and that it will be powered by a much improved version of the Serious Engine.

As Croteam’s Alen Ladavac wrote on Steam:
"We will support Vulkan. But we probably won’t be removing support for other APIs soon."

This is a D3D11 sample app that demonstrates several techniques for rendering real-time shadow maps. The following techniques are implemented:

    Cascaded Shadow Maps
    Stabilized Cascaded Shadow Maps
    Automatic Cascade Fitting based on depth buffer analysis, as in Sample Distribution Shadow Maps.
    Various forms of Percentage Closer Filtering
    Variance Shadow Maps
    Exponential Variance Shadow Maps (EVSM)
    Moment Shadow Maps

Microsoft is making the tools that its own researchers use to speed up advances in artificial intelligence available to a broader group of developers by releasing its Computational Network Toolkit on GitHub.

CNTK, the Computational Network Toolkit by Microsoft Research, is a unified deep-learning toolkit that describes neural networks as a series of computational steps via a directed graph.

Seeing some really impressive improvements on early Vulkan drivers with native code, will win big when Unity and Unreal get support.
